    In WinXP, when you browse the network you can press ctrl+f and search for a computer either by computer name or IP address. In Vista Beta 2 search, I can't figure out how to search for a computer. Can anyone tell me how to do it?

    Thanks.

    I'm not familiar w/ the ctr-f in Xp, but if you just type \\Computer_Name in the address bar and hit enter it will search for a computer with that name, or you can just put the IP. Of course change Computer_Name to what your searching for.
